This course will provide a survey of the geography of the US and Canada, starting with physical geography and historical developments that shaped human geography, and then moving into a region-by-region overview. Special emphasis will be on issues of environmental change and sustainability, and the diversity of peoples and cultures and their relationships with landscapes and each other. This newly developed course will include a variety of experimental readings, lectures and activities. Students will co-design, teach and assess one experimental reading or activity themselves. Class activities will include some remote activities and participation such as videos, podcasts, web interactives, a self-guided field trip, and interacting with classmates via moodle or a blog.
